Mercedes-Benz is going after the premium soft-roader segment dominated by Audi’s Allroad offerings and Volvo’s expanding Cross Country range.
Mercedes has selected the All-Terrain name for its soft-roaders, the first of which will be based on the new E-Class Wagon.
The German automaker has confirmed that this E-Class All-Terrain will make its world debut in September at the 2016 Paris auto show.

Prototypes have already been spotted. Compared to the regular E-Class Wagon, they feature a taller ride height, widened wheel arches, and protective elements on the bumpers and side sills. You can bet an all-wheel-drive system is also fitted.
We should receive more details on the car, including availability in the United States, following the reveal at the Paris auto show. The automaker will also use the show to present a new electric concept, electric versions of the Smart family, and the new Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster.
The doors open to the media on September 29 but in the meantime learn about some of the other vehicles set to appear by visiting our dedicated hub.
